I recently posted a comment on a blog, and was surprised to get a trackback link as a result from their blog. Suddenly I understood what all the excitement is over turning off the NoFollow links from commenters. Why not make those links real? So I’ve installed DoFollow here on WordPressGarage.com, and we’ll see how it goes.
I chose to install the Semiologic plugin because it is the most simple – it just turns on all comment links. The reason I felt that this was sufficient is that I have this blog set up so that I have to approve comments the first time they are posted from a reader, and then after that they appear automatically. So I’m not worried that comments that appear are spam, since I’ve approved them.
